The Rev. Dr. Linda King announces her plans to establish a non-profit foundation in Natchitoches in the name of her late husband, the Rev. Dr. Randolph King Jr., and herself.
“The ultimate goal of this movement is to provide scholarships for financially challenged students desiring to study at a Bible college for varying levels of academic and recognized Christian Educational credentials and degrees,” Dr. Linda King says.
“The King family has long been associated with Salvation Ministries in the Campti community where the church was founded by the late Rev. Dr. Randolph King Jr., on the premise of knowing God in his fullness and worshipping him in the temple as well as in the highways and hedges where the common man resides and really needs the good news of the gospel,” Dr. King says. She is senior pastor at Salvation Ministries and her daughter, Brandol King Willis, is assistant pastor.
“The foundation founders are asking for you prayers, your support and your encouragement for this movement that will be open to every segment of the community and beyond,” she says. “Their hearts, hands and spirits are open to welcoming people of every age group, socioeconomic background, ethic group who desire to study for Christian education, credentials, associates degrees, bachelor degrees, master’s degrees and Ph.D. degrees in Christian education. “
